Endings and Beginnings
Also beautiful are the Florida strawberries I got in yesterday, and made into jam today. I love the smell and the colors of strawberries! These aren't the best I'll have this spring, but they will tide me over until the local berries come in, in about 3 weeks. They make lovely jam, much better than the jam I made at the end of February when Florida strawberries were first in. They've also gone down 9 cents a pound! Tomorrow, it's more jam, then pickled okra. Okra's not in season here yet; I simply have to do it for the chefs who need it for a special event. It's from Nicaragua, well-traveled okra! When the local stuff comes in, it'll be the end of summer. Right now, it's sweet dream time for me. I still smell like strawberries enough to fuel some jam-o-licious dreams!
